Refined through over 200 Skills Assessments to date, The Source utilizes the “The Faculty Skills Assessment” to deliver:
1. Improved performance - By articulating the competencies, Procurement is making its performance expectations clear
2. Clear and consistent Standards - Clear expectations on roles and responsibilities provides clarity and transparency for employees with clear measures and targets to attain towards best practice
3. Workforce flexibility - Developing people across the broader group competencies will provide a much higher level of flexibility with future re-design and alignment of the Procurement team structure and accountabilities
4. Attraction and Retention - A specific set of competencies and associated measurement and development processes will provide new and existing team members with a view on how they can grow within the business, rather than being restricted to their particular area of expertise
Using an online tool, and combining self assessment, manager assessment(s) and customer assessments, managers can assess individual’s or teams’ supplier management, negotiations, stakeholder engagement, personal effectiveness and technical competencies.
